The surgery seemed to go pretty well - the doctor said there was less damage in there than he expected, always a good sign. In a sling at the moment but should be out of it by Sunday. Only glitch was eating too soon after the anaesthetic (memo to all newish parents out there: sometimes having your children throw upon you isn't something that disappears from the duty statement when they turn two). Still expecting at this stage to be training again by Cup Day.

Run 1:06:00 [3] 14.0 km (4:43 / km)

Started out as unpromisingly as last night did but turned nice after about 10 minutes, and going along fairly smoothly for most of the rest of the day. Calf again tight and hip twinge was back (a little), but a couple of weeks off should do wonders for that sort of minor niggle.

This will be my last run for a couple of weeks - I'm going in tomorrow to have the wiring removed from the elbow I broke in a sprint race in NZ last January. Shouldn't be too much drama (one night in hospital and a few days in a sling), but will be my first extended break for a while (like since the injury which led to this in the first place).

Run 43:00 [2] 8.0 km (5:23 / km)

MFR Monday night. The end of the season but Mad Monday it wasn't. Felt pretty sluggish, and calf tightest for a while, but at this point I don't really care.

If we had been trying to replicate a football Mad Monday, we would have got ourselves spectacularly drunk, and ended up with someone getting arrested for groping someone else in a sleazy King Street establishment and/or urinating against the side of a police car, but orienteers aren't like that (most of the time). Definitely good marks for Kirsten's risotto though.
